How do images become placeholders for historic moments? What happens in the brain when images are no longer pictures, but rather icons loaded with emotion or politics? How is meaning-making changing as our world is increasingly flooded with images? This multi-media discussion event features short presentations by a panel of artists, journalists, and visual critics followed by a lively conversation about the ways that images (or the lack thereof) shape perception. Panelists include Nina Elder, Claudia X. Valdes, Dr. Khristaan Villela and others.
